Indian Judge at the ICJ: Some Developments

I had noted earlier that India had nominated Justice Dalveer Bhandari for election to the ICJ. It now appears that the Philippines has nominated Justice Florentino Feliciano for election to the same vacancy. Justice Feliciano has served on the WTO Appellate Body. He was also an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines. He completed his LL.M. and JSD from Yale Law School. The official note on his nomination can be found here. The elections are scheduled for 27 April 2012.

On the topic of Justice Bhandari’s nomination, while browsing the Internet I recently came across this RTI request by Subhash Chandra Agrawal and the response by the MEA, Govt. of India. The RTI request seeks information about the nomination process as it is carried out in India. The response is basic and minimally revealing, repeating only the information available on the ICJ and PCA websites.

Update (25 March 2012): The Hindu has picked up on the story now, as well.
